CentOS is among the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is employed by various web hosting service providers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very fast and takes negligible system resources. What's more, you can set up and run any web application, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to customize any part of your Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you'll have to pay only for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever experience any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to discover a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, which means that you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You will be able to pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server throughout the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the option to select the one that is more suitable for the applications that you intend to install and manage. CentOS supports a variety of web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to create a separate account for each and every domain hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the entire server as one single account. You will also have the choice to acquire the VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but with no extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you will be able to set up web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, since this Operating System is on the list of options that you're able to pick during the order process. Since the software that you need to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports a number of web hosting Control Panels, and if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to manage the server as if you're managing one large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have separate accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates weekly and will make sure that your server is safe and has the most recent software all the time, so as to ensure the optimum performance for your sites.
